The problem is guile 1.8 and slib -- they don't work well together
without a lot of help, and if the packagers dont help it, well.. You
get stuck.  Check the wiki -- there's a command to the macports
'port' command to tell it to use guile 1.6 when installing gnucash.
But these issues are outside our gnucash's pervue.
